How to holiday in Noosa for Christmas 2020

With the events of 2020 putting a dampening on many events this year, the easing of restrictions and reopening state borders from 1 December is something we can all be thankful for this Christmas.

If you and your family have decided to spend Christmas in Noosa this year, we’ve put together some activities that will help make your Christmas holiday in Noosa a little more festive.

What is an Aussie Christmas without a tour of the suburbs to view the Christmas lights trail? Take the family on a drive after dark to see how some of the locals in Noosa and Tewantin have created their home Christmas displays. Visit Local Life Magazine for addresses.
